Traditional Layout | A E I {Heart} U Challenge

Hi! We are still in "vacation mode" around here... at least for a few more days. Evan doesn't go back to school until Tuesday, and Jack is off for another week. We have been playing, watching way too much TV,  reading new books, playing Blokus and Trouble, making paper airplanes, cleaning, napping... and mostly doing nothing. It's been great! The kids have been wonderfully well behaved the past week. Exceptionally so. They have been so busy playing with their new toys that bickering hasn't occurred to them. I hate to tempt fate, but I am thoroughly enjoying our vacation together.

After the boys are in bed I usually head to my office to watch episodes of the West Wing and work on cards or layouts or my (not-so-finished) December Daily... and I have been extra productive this week. I am feeling rather proud of myself. :-)

I pulled out a few Studio Calico kits for this layout (and I used one of my favorite pictures):


I also finished another card for Avery Elle's A E I {Heart} U challenge:

(Supplies - Stamps: (Avery Elle) Lots of Love, Picture It. Cardstock: (Avery Elle) Cherry, Mimosa, (PTI) White). Patterned Paper: BasicGrey. Ink: (PTI) Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, Harvest Gold. Other: Gems, DMC floss, twine).

Make sure to check back on the 6th for my Great Impressions Stamps challenge card... it's a beauty! Thanks for stopping by!
